Here we often get asked which crystals should you definitely have in your collection.
On one hand… it is kind of a general question. Like asking which clothes should you wear; without mentioning if its something for summer, winter or Halloween. But on the other hand, me and other crystal healers tend to come back to certain crystals more often than others, because of their wide array of uses.
So, the crystals I listed here are special for two reasons. First of all, whether you’re an avid collector, or brand new to the world of gemstones, these are all beginner friendly (they cover your basic needs), and at the same time you can use them daily in your advanced healing sessions.
Secondly. The chosen crystals are proper eye candy! Ok that’s actually not the second reason, that’s more of a bonus. But on an actual note - these crystals find their way deep into your soul, because each one of them is also associated with one of the seven corresponding chakras. And chakras are the energy centers of our body.
Balance and activate your connection to the Universe and your physical body with these seven must-have crystals:
1. Root Chakra - Smokey Quartz
Smokey Quartz is one of the most powerful stones to use in crystal healing layouts to activate and purify the Base or Root Chakra. It’s a grounding stone. It allows one to attune to the light instead of being consumed by life. Rather than merely surfacing negative energies and emotional blockages, this crystal gently dissolves these energies as it encounters them, allowing positive frequencies to take their place.
2. Sacral Chakra - Carnelian
Have you got big plans and deep down you know you must get your life together, but just can’t seem to shake off the doubt in you? Sacral Chakra is associated with creativity. That actually makes you a pretty normal person haha, aren’t we all like that more than we’d like to admit.
Not only is it beautiful, Carnelian is a wonderful talisman for success. It helps you pave new paths to attract good luck. It also protects you against envy, rage and resentment - whether it’s coming from you or somebody else.
Carnelian helps circulate vital energy to your center where powerful creative instincts reside. This stone melds together mental focus and creativity and activates both the right and left parts of the brain. It is often use for motivation, endurance, leadership and courage.
3. Solar Plexus - Citrine
Citrine attracts love, light, and positivity. When we embrace such mindset, the Universe will conspire to bring into reality that which we desire. Often times, we are our own worst enemy. Having Citrine in your space will bring light even when you are surrounded by darkness.
4. Heart Chakra - Rose Quartz
Tapping into the loving energy of the heart chakra will open new realms for you and help you form better, closer relationships. It will expand business opportunities as well as love interests. It can also repair broken bonds and a lack of self-esteem from personal failures.
5. Throat Chakra - Turquoise
Turquoise is often used to achieve goals. It clears confusion and negativity, increases intuition and inspiration, and stimulates the intellect to expand in knowledge and truth.
6. Third Eye Chakra - Amethyst
Amethyst is possibly one of the best crystals for meditation; it guides the mind toward deeper understanding. Even if you don't like the idea of meditating, let Amethyst guide you.
7. Crown Chakra - Clear Quartz
Clear Quartz is highly sought after for its ability to clear the mind of negativity to allow for higher spiritual receptiveness. Let clear quartz help you receive messages from your guardian angels, and believe in yourself. You've got this!
There’s no right or wrong way to benefit from them. You simply do what feels right - either carry them with you, place them around your home, or place them on the corresponding chakras for your chakra balancing meditation sessions.
P.S. Which one out of these seven speaks to you the most?
Talk to you soon! Love, peace and happiness,
